Thin walls, old beds with ugly spreads, stained blankets, towels you can read through, and single ply toilet paper at $160 a night. What more could you want? Well, if it is one of the last rooms around on a Saturday night you take it. The outside is charming but old, the rooms could be the same but they miss... More

We moved out of the room in the middle of the night after discovering a bedbug. We captured it and showed it to the front desk lady the next morning. She crushed it and said, "That wasn't a bedbug." No refund. Stay away. We had a much better experience at the Best Western a couple of blocks down the road.

I told the receptionist that I accept the room if she could garuantee it was a clean room. However, when I was paying by my creditcard she... More

We spent two nights here and with the benefit of hindsight wished we had been able to stay somewhere else. The motor festival at Pebble Beach probably contributed to the lack of available accommodation when we were booking our trip. The website states that Padre Oaks has a pool; it, in fact, does not and has not had one for... More

Read the reviews but decided to give them a chance anyway. Mom and Pop place, owners seemed pleasant enough. I booked the hotel through booking.com. Hotel very old and outdated. Floral bedspreads and bed skirts, ugh. No A/C, drove to WalMart to get a fan just to have some circulation in the room. Picked up some air freshener too as... More

Older motel, park directly in front of your door, inexpensive, clean and good location. I would stay again. Bathroom had been remodeled fairly recently. Not posh but very reasonable for a peak month. Directly across the street from Del Momte a Shopping Center. Few minutes drive to Carmel.

Made a late reservation and just needed a place to sleep so chose this motel. My expectations were not high and I was still disappointed. First, the management. Like others have said, they are bad. The woman must think she would die if she smiled. I mentioned to her that I had an appointment and asked if I could Stay... More

I booked this hotel through booking.com in a desperate attempt to find a place to stay between LA and San Francisco on Memorial Day weekend. What a bust. $300 for an old, smelly motel room with a bed that is a little better than a pile of old pizza boxes. No AC here either, unless of course you open your... More

Place looks good, unhelpful and unfriendly staff, rooms on first entering look good but are fairly ordinary. Water in shower was so hot we could not stand it and there was no way of adjusting it. We could not find heating system and slept in a cold room. Forget breakfast, some kind of cake, and juice, didnt see it on... More
